Bloomingdale Chiropractic Office Helps Whiplash

Whiplash Treatment

One of the most common injuries that people suffer from after an auto accident in Bloomingdale is whiplash. When a chiropractor books an appointment to see a patient after a car accident, it is often to treat the pain that results from a whiplash injury.

What Is Whiplash?

Whiplash is a term that is used by the medical profession to describe a neck injury that occurs as the result of a car accident. Being hit from behind or “rear-ended” is one of the most common type of auto accidents, and the one most likely to produce whiplash. When you are hit from behind, the head whips back and then forward, causing the injury.

How Is It Diagnosed?

When a Bloomingdale chiropractic office diagnoses a whiplash injury, your entire spine will be evaluated to ensure the only injury is in the neck. They will look for any areas that display poor range of motion, muscle spasm, general weakness and pain. In the acute phase, you probably won’t be able to turn your head comfortably and your head may hurt. Your chiropractor will also feel around your neck and back, looking for tender spots and tightness.

Chiropractic Treatment for Whiplash

When whiplash is still in the acute stage, a chiropractor may use gentle stretching, ultrasound and other techniques in an effort to reduce inflammation. You might also be advised to apply ice in order to reduce the swelling. After the initial swelling has subsided and the pain lessens, the treatment will turn to spinal manipulation to restore the normal blood flow and motion to your neck.
No one likes the thought of getting into a car accident, but you have little control over being hit from behind when you’re driving. If you think you may have whiplash, the key is to seek attention as soon as possible. If you’re not in a medical emergency, book an appointment with our team at Sandman Chiropractic so we can assess the situation and get started on the appropriate chiropractic treatment.
